Discover Your Irish & Scots-Irish Ancestors: Ulster Lecture Tour

Want to discover your Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors? Many people believe that researching Irish ancestors is impossible because of the destruction of the Public Record Office in 1922. While many records were destroyed, others survived and large collections have come online in recent years.

Join Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Ulster Historical Foundation during their annual USA lecture tour (2 dates in ARKANSAS). Learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research.

Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss these workshops! Fuller contact details with additional information can be found at: www.ancestryireland.com/northamericantour2017
